(ECY) <br />Subject:Supporting Jefferson County SMP <br />Categories:LASMP Public Comment <br />Dear Mr. Stewart: <br /> <br />I am in full agreement of having 150 foot buffers which were supported by significant testimony at all meetings <br />and hearings, and which are supported in the current science as a compromise of buffer widths necessary to <br />protect shoreline functions. <br /> <br />I also agree that we prohibit commercial net pen farming - because as demonstrated elsewhere, these are <br />ecologically damaging to our aquaculture. <br /> <br />The SMP does well in prohibiting all mining and mining-related activities on our natural, conservation, and <br />residential shorelines. <br /> <br />I fully appreciate the care that the Jefferson County Board of County Commissioners took to study and analyze <br />the testimony given by hundreds of concerned people and incorporating those ideas where appropriate; the <br />involvement of shoreline owners on the Policy Advisory Committee is to be commended; and finally, the <br />efforts of the DCD staff to keep communication lines open with shoreline owners at every stage of this lengthy <br />process. <br /> <br /> <br />Thank you and your staff for your careful consideration in approving our Shoreline Management Program. You <br />have our community's full support. <br /> <br /> <br />JD Gallant <br />PO Box 490 <br />Quilcene WA 98376 <br /> <br />1 <br />
